Knitting Update

Ok, don't die of shock - can you believe it? Two posts in one week. The world MUST be coming to an end (or I've been feeling a tad guilty about neglecting the blog).

Well, I have been working diligently on the Green Gable this week. I tried it on this evening and I have reached my waistline and I will definately be needing to add the increases for the hips. I must say that it fits perfectly thus far and I hope to be finished this weekend and with pictures to post. (yes, I know I've promised pictures before, but I eventually get around to uploading them from the camera to the computer).

I have also done some work on my Jitterbug Socks this week during my lunch time. I'm about half-way through the foot on the first sock.

I have been getting the Knitting Daily emails. If you haven't been getting those, you need to jump over to the interweave press website and sign up. Yesterday, the editor had a picture of the Lacy Little Top she made from Lana Knits. I think it may have to make the project list soon.

After I get done with Green Gables, my next big project will be my next Zephyr Stlye Pattern, Rusted Root. I'm excited to do this sweater next. I have loved the Green Gables Pattern. It is very well written and easy to follow.

I also need to spend some more time on that Baby Blanket in Progress. My cousin's baby is due the end of July and I'm only about 1/3 done with the blanket. Must get to knitting!

It is official - I AM THE WORST BLOGGER

Ok, I really suck at this. Good Grief, it has been 4 1/2 months since I blogged last. Time just goes by too quicky!

Not that it means that there has been a lack of knitting, just a lack of some finished projects. I do have some pictures of some finished projects and may even get them uploaded to the computer from the camera and then I may actually post them. Imagine that - someone who actually blogs and posts pictures. Say it isn't so!!

Let's see projects currently on needles:

Green Gables Sweater
Matahari Socks
Jitterbug Socks
Cable & Lace Baby Blanket
Ribbed socks for my Dad (the project that just won't end)
Koigu Triangle Shawl

There are many others, but these are the ones I have actually spent time working on in the last few weeks.

Stay tuned! I might actually be back!!
